Stayed here for two nights. The rooms are very small, the door hits the bed as you walk in. Ditto the bathroom, the basin almost hangs over the w.c. and you need to negotiate around the w.c. to reach the shower. The bathroom door is a sliding affair as there is no room for a proper door. There was a... More

This is a plain hotel suited for those who are not interested in Rio's beach-life culture but, most of all, want to pay less for accommodations in one of Brazil's most expensive cities. The hotel is within walking distance from Gloria subway station making it easy to go to major attractions in town. It's also safe to walk around and... More

Our whole family stayed in Rio for 7 nights and Hotel Monte Castelo was a really good value for a good area in Rio. The staff was very nice and tried to speak english (or even showed us a bit around, which was really nice!) The rooms were quite good, even if it wasnt the cleanest. For the money you... More

The room is really tiny with an even smaller shower room. Ground floor room was a little noisy but still ok. Breakfast was okish, nothing special. Diner is also very small. Access to main road and public transport was good but street was a little dodgy, didn't really feel safe walking home at night.

We went there for one night during our transfer to Ilha grande. The price is pretty high considering the room that we got ( small, underground with a window that you can not really open as it is in the corridor). When it is hot, you can get any fresh air in. The shower space is small and you can... More

Good hotel, clean, close to a subway station and also to the Lapa neighborhood. The rooms are simple, the bed is just ok. The breakfast doesn't have many options but is enough. The price is the most attractive characteristic.

It was a great location, right downtown, only minutes from Lapa and the Saleron Stairs. Excellent if your trip to Rio revolves around downtown. It's also close to the metro station, so it shouldn't be difficult to get to the beaches (the metro is very efficient and fast). The staff was super friendly and nice, and eager to help us... More

I stayed at this hotel in May 2013. The hotel for the price was excellent. Carmeline (The lady at reception desk) and the manager of the hotel (sorry cant remember name) were just fantastic. They both spoke excellent english and more than happy to provide assistance whenever possible. Breakfast was reasonable but do agree should be more variety rather the... More

During Fifa's World Cup I stayed there with friends. It was a nice experience due to this hotel is outside the main touristic area (Copacabana and/or Ipanema). Gloria neighborhood is like others in "Zona Sul" so we did not have any trouble to stay there. Also, it's near a "metro" station witch was helpful to go quickly to "Zona Sul"... More
